The driver who sheared a power pole on Kalamalka Lake Road Tuesday is being charged.
A vehicle went off road July 4 at approximately 1:35 a.m. near Browne Road.
“The driver was taken to hospital with serious non-life threatening injuries and was charged under the Motor Vehicle Act with exceeding the speed limit and driving without due care,” said Cpl. Tania Finn, Vernon North Okanagan RCMP media relations.
Power was knocked out to thousands in Coldstream and Vernon for hours while crews replaced the pole.
Kalamalka Road was also closed between the golf course and the Alpine Centre.
